In addition you will have:

  • A proven track record of solving difficult and complex technical problems
  • Experience of dietary risk assessment within the agrochemical/pesticide industry or in an industry where human exposure evaluations and risk assessment are required
  • Knowledge of the EU pesticide guidelines relating to residue chemistry and an appreciation of similar guidelines in other parts of the world

  • The foresight to develop strategies aligned with team objectives and the wider ambitions of the business
